Why?

Important note: This website is part of a family of websites that utilise the same templates and CMS. Three national museums are a part of this family, however; we’ve selected the Canada Aviation and Space museum’s site for this nomination.

The site is great at what it does because it was specifically designed with mobile users in mind.

The layout is simple, the site is fast, it’s fully responsive, buttons and links are large, and the content was specifically written for the web. In addition, the content is the same, regardless of the device you use (no duplication of content in the back-end).

Some of the cool features include:

– Instant directions (see visual below or click here for live example)
